      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of aces(Ad Ah).
      BB shows two pairs, kings and queens(Qd Kh).

      BB wins with two pairs, kings and queens(Qd Kh).

      Villain 37/22 (129 hands). Villain was calling almost all my raises while i was in SB, some reads indicated that he doesn't have trips cause he was raising with them, wasn't sure about two pair.

      Flop and turn is ok, maybe i should bet a bit more. What about river? Is it ok to push cause he might be playing AK or any weaker king?

      I had the same hand and asked for evaluation, the standart line is bet, bet, shove.Here this line seems the most reasonable one.Tho your preflop raise from SB is too little, should add 1BB for the limper and if u add 1 BB for being OOP u should do it here also.

      Hello,

      Preflop: You can raise bigger at least 5xBB.
      Flop: Against such loose opponents you can likely just bet near pot, ~$0.20.
      Turn: Also near pot to make the pushing easier on river.
      River: Now should be the pot big enough to shove directly and not overbet.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
